Writing

Whether it involves working on a blog entry or developing a book or article idea, I am always looking for fresh ways to connect theology with every day life.

My “inspirations” usually come through some kind of life situation (frequently involving my children) that provides an illustration of a particular theological idea. Writing is also a wonderful way to express what God is doing in my life and how He is developing my faith — both in heart and mind. I write two standing columns (“Bible Bookend” and “Educator's Help Desk”) in the Reasons To Believe e-zine, New Reasons To Believe.

New Frontiers in Christian Apologetics

Read Krista's article about an emerging area of science called, biomimetics. It offers some unique opportunities for Christian students to contribute to in the future.

Biomimetics, or biologically inspired design, is an emerging discipline where scientists study designs from nature and adapt them to solve real-world problems. Some classic examples include DaVinci’s flying machines based on his study of birds or examining gecko feet to enhance the stickiness of tape. Biomimetics motivates us to see living organisms as agents of inspiration for human innovation. more...

Curriculum Review: Exploring Creation

Homeschool mom Jeannie Fulbright’s Exploring Creation series has become wildly popular among Christian homeschool parents. Fulbright provides a user-friendly science curriculum from a creation perspective. The texts are nicely bound in hardcover and filled with colorful pictures. Each lesson is organized with a narrative, notebook journal, an activity, and a project, which reflects the Charlotte Mason approach. By focusing on a single subject for an entire year, she exposes students to a wide array of topics, many of which are omitted from standard science texts. more...

Who's Your Mommy?

I grew up in the 70s: channeling Evel Knievel on my bike, carrying a Star Wars lunch box, and having some rather unfortunate encounters with bell-bottom pants. I’m sure I’m not alone in my recollection of a popular margarine commercial where viewers were admonished not to fool “Mother Nature.” Little did I know, this memorable tagline introduced me to a character who has come to dominate our cultural dialogue: Mother Nature or Mother Earth. more...
